old CODGER

after the ordeal
of a prolonged COVID-19
isolation ……
aided by the persistent
pain and fatigue of illness  ~
I often find myself
afloat
in a sea of
memory
known as
yesteryear
and the word
old CODGER
slowly seeping
into my self-esteem  ~
well ……  I must admit
it’s somewhat
due to
the conjured up
vanity
called
my appearance

just saying …..
peace out
